Is it possible to set up input for more joystick?

(I have two different Saitek, from one of them I created Rudder Pedals...)

I have set up them in controls, working great, but still wish to make fine tuning on axis behaviour... Hardware input settings is dead when there is more than one joystick...

Any solution?

Out of curiosity: How did you create them pedals? Can we have a pic of 'm?
Here's mine:

FB supports up to 4 controller s flawlessly.. I use a MSFFB2/Saitek X-45/CH pedal/TIR combo.. that is quite immersive.

I know it looks ugly, but it feels great...

Now I use Saitek ST90, X Axis, (my camera is on repair-so-no photo) , it just stand on the floor, on top of grip are lines conected..
I didnt make beauty work around it, for me is only important that it works, and dont cost 300$

Meybe somebody knows can I buy beter potentiometers and use them on Logitech? Which one?
Here are originals...

Being stupid http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/351.gif How do you map in a second joystick? I'm using an X45 as my main stick and was thinking of using an old Logitech Wingman as a rudder?

Adriatic,

Nice idea to use that monitor stand as a a base...

For me also, most important thing is it works.
And it doesn't cost lots of money!

Been thinking about wires too (before I thought of my current design) but I was afraid they wouldn't hold out on the heavy action long enough... I do like to kick the rudder...

Have Fun!

Well, how about just pluggin' it in and assigning the proper controls to it? As longs as it's USB it will work!

And: follow the link in Steve_V's post...

Have Fun!

Right!

Maping is no problem, only making input adjustments needs half hour; at least first time...
(Thanks to Steve..)

And-lines are not from wire-it is silk string, or that is how we call it...just stronger one that is normaly in use...
